Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, is addressing Apple's entry into the car manufacturing industry.

"They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the 'Tesla Graveyard.' If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding."

Despite his reservations against Apple's hiring skills, he commended their decision to join the automotive industry.

However, he also revealed that he does not consider them a competition.

"Seriously: It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches."

Do you think Apple can compete against Tesla Motors?
